X, formerly known as Twitter, has launched government ID-based account verification for paid users to prevent impersonation.

X says the idea is also geared towards giving paid users benefits such as “prioritized support.”

On its support page, X said it has partnered with Israel-based Au10tix for identity verification solutions and described it as an appropriate step.

Users who go through the verification badge will have a note that says that their government ID was verified but they can only see it when they click on the blue checkmark on the profile page.

X also added that users with ID verification will get “prioritized support from X Services.
